Install "gnome-bluetooth" in synaptic... it will give you 2 System
Tools: Bluetooth Filesharing, and Bluetooth Manager. Then you can use
"gnome-obex-send XX" to transfer to your devices. I use it to transfer
to my phone and also PDA.

I have an "Ultra BTA-3000" Bluetooth USB dongle that works great like this.
